The Kaduna State government on Thursday dismissed as untrue and baseless the rumours making the rounds that Governor Nasir El-Rufai was and is still ill, receiving treatment abroad.
Government House sources however explained that “Governor El-Rufai is hale and hearty, and is overseas receiving lectures on his doctoral degree programme.
He would soon be back to the state.”
The source, who pleaded anonymity told journalists that “El-Rufai has started receiving lectures as a part time PhD student in Governance and Policy Analysis at United Nations University, Merit, Netherlands.”
Bar and Bench Watch reports that since three weeks that the governor has been out of the state, there had been rumour that he was flown out for medical attention abroad.
